The first lines of the ICECAT 61 cat start to get noticed.
Demolded hull # 01, the glossy gel coat has illuminated the yard for the owner's joy.
Lamination lasted just over a month; carbon and Corecell® were arranged with the typical of a handicraft yard care.
The infusion technique allowed the use of the only amount of resin needed, providing lightweight boat, solid, high-standard.
The interiors have a modern design, great indoor-outdoor relationship, so much space for long cruises and equally comfortable. The construction of the furniture is the result of a long study involving lightened and simplified construction materials to minimize adaptation to the hull.
At weeks we will perform the tests of the innovative hybrid powertrains, which unlike those in commerce, they have the ability to completely exclude the electronics in the event of malfunction of this.
The electric motors will ensure a green navigation for over an hour at medium speed, making it possible to navigate in protected areas and mooring without the use of heat engines.
The main feature of this system in the process (patent pending) is the positioning of the engines in water, which brings two main advantages:
- The propeller mounted on the shaft of the electric motor ensures a 100% efficiency.
- The engine is cooled by sea water, no heat exchangers and circulation pumps.
